Sunday Stash – A Thousand Paper Cuts

Well, this week I’m net zero but did finish what feels like a hundred small projects.  Offset that with fabric I purchased for the border of the big project I’ve been working on, and Bob’s your uncle, net zero.

I made two FQ pop-up bins and two Sew Sweetness Kismet Trinket Boxes (only one shown below; the other is on Instagram). Lots of fussy bits, but worth it! I really hated the container my Wonder Clips came in, so the small round Kismet Trinket Box works perfect as a much cuter replacement.

 

I also finished my mini for the Fandoms in Florals swap on Instagram.  No finished pics until my partner gets it, but I’m pleased with how it turned out. You can see a close-up of some of the quilting here.

I’ve also taken over the Boutique area for our guild quilt show, so I spent some time sorting and pricing items.  In doing that, I’ve discovered some half-finished items that lacked binding, so I pulled from my stash to complete those items.  I’ll probably finish the rest in the coming week as I need an escape from the last-week-of-school madness!

  1. You are ahead of me. I bought more fabric – for projects! – I just haven’t been able to sew much lately. I am determined to change that and get some yardage in the used column. Good idea for the WonderClips storage.

  2. I like these. And am thinking a larger version would be perfect to hold kitty toys! 🙂
